Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Going through hell?

Keep going!

Been entertaining reading about all the whinging, trainspotting, messenger-hating, and guys who think a 'fixie chick' is the modern day Mona Lisa.

Keep going.

I used to like Surly. Then I realized that my bearings had died in less than a year. My next hub will be something better. So much for supporting the local economy...

When I was in the jungles of Panama, this kid came stumbling out of the tree-line with a bucket full of Strawberry Crush in glass bottles. There wasn't a ville in sight. How the hell did he find us?

Tall bright beaming Americans? When ever I travel in Mexico the locals all look up at me like I am some kind of a giant. Fortunately most of them carry smiles instead of slings.
